‘The Rising of the Shield Hero’ Season 3 Release Date Revealed

Fans of embattled isekai hero Naofumi Iwatani got some important news. The release date for the third season of the anime has been revealed by an X post as October 6, 2023, in Japan. Kinema Citrus returns to animate the new upcoming episodes with Hitoshi Haga stepping into the director’s role. MADKID returns to perform the opening theme song titled “Sin.”

Crunchyroll has revealed that they will stream the show as part of their Fall line-up.

You can take a look at the X post here:

The anime is based on a 2013 series of light novels written by Aneko Yusagi, illustrated by Seira Minami, and published by Media Factory which also publishes a manga version.

The Rising of the Shield Hero wiki describes the synopsis as follows,

“Stories of old tell of four otherworldly heroes—wielding the sword, spear, bow, and shield—who defended the land from wave after wave of calamity. With the fate of the world in balance, the kingdom of Melromarc summons these legendary figures; in modern-day Japan, the call is answered, and the unwitting heroes are transported to this fantasy universe.

Thrust into Melromarc and given the title of “Shield Hero,” otaku Naofumi Iwatani is labeled the weakest due to his lack of offensive capability and apparent inexperience. When the heroes part ways to start their journeys, he only has one willing companion: the beautiful princess Malty Melromarc. However, she soon betrays him, steals all his money, and accuses him of harming her.

For his alleged crimes, Naofumi is branded a criminal and made an outcast of society. With hatred filling his heart, he sets out alone, vowing vengeance against those who wronged him.”

The first season was produced by Kinema Citrus with DR Movie taking over the second season but production returned to Kinema Citrus for season three.
